Love to read everyone's ideas on okra gel. It is truly my HG. You can add ingredients to the okra mix just as you would to FSG batch. I add guar gum for my thickner and magnesium flakes right after I have strained, while it's still hot.

I agree with kathymack on sucragel being a great additive. It just give great shine to my hair.

I feel that my 2nd day hair can also feel products if I reapply too much okra gel that morning. I feel sometimes that just 're-wetting reactivated the gel. The first day you can use a hearty amount, but 2nd is minute amounts.

Was wondering if anyone has tried honey instead of agave nectar. I wouldn't mind using something that mighte help lighten up my hair up a bit. It's soo dark, you really can't see my curls
